Home Quarantine Meaning
Home quarantine means separating yourself from others at home. That is, self-isolation. Meaning if you are suspected of being infected with the coronavirus or have just had a cold, then in a room, you separate yourself from other members of the house and the outside world. With this, you can stop the virus from spreading to others. It is a Latin word that means forty days. It is said that in old times when a ship was suspected of being sick or an infected passenger, the ship had to stay forty days away from the port. Such a system was introduced in Great Britain as an attempt to stop the plague.
